A Small-bodied, All-solid-wood A/E from Yamaha!

Want a smaller-bodied acoustic-electric guitar with exceptional tone and playability? Check out the Yamaha LS16M. Part of Yamaha’s legendary L Series, the LS16M uses a hand-selected, solid Engelmann spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides to give you a rich, warm sounding guitar with full-range response. The 5-ply mahogany/rosewood neck sports not only a smooth-playing rosewood fingerboard, but also a new, slimmer neck shape and an enhanced fingerboard edge. A passive SRT Zero Impact Pickup uses six separate elements to detect each string and give you authentic plugged-in tones. The updated Yamaha LS16M delivers killer tone and playability in a premium acoustic-electric guitar.

  • Innovative guitar design gives you an amazing-playing and sounding instrument
  • Smaller “medium jumbo” body size is amazingly comfortable, and perfect for finger picking
  • Hand-selected solid Engelmann spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides for rich tone and projection
  • A.R.E. process molecularly “ages” the wood to match guitars that have been played for years
  • 5-ply mahogany/rosewood neck has been redesigned for today’s guitar player
  • Updated non-scalloped bracing pattern delivers a fuller low-end
  • Passive SRT Zero Impact pickup uses individual piezo elements for each string
  • Hardshell case included

Innovative construction to build a better guitar

The great tone and smooth playability of the LS16M are due to Yamaha’s never-ending search for perfection. The recently developed A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) process gives your guitar a broken-in and aged tone. By controlling the atmospheric pressure, temperature, and humidity, the molecular properties of the wood are manipulated to mirror those of a guitar that has been played for years. Each L Series guitar also sports a modified non-scalloped bracing that enhances the guitars low end. And the 5-ply mahogany/rosewood neck, after re-evaluation of string height and spacing, has a new design for improved playability. The Yamaha LS16M utilizes newly developed advances in guitar construction to bring you an amazingly playable and great-sounding instrument.

Solid tonewoods deliver great tone

Yamaha chose a premium, hand-selected solid Engelmann spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, solid spruce has a well-rounded, articulate sound with excellent projection. Its solid mahogany back and sides provide exceptional bass and focus. And because the LS16M is a solid-wood guitar, the tone will age gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by. Combine the premium tonewoods with the LS16M’s smaller “medium jumbo” body size, and you’ve got a guitar that’s wonderfully detailed and responsive – ideal for finger picking!

A full-range passive pickup system

The passive SRT Zero Impact Pickup was designed by Yamaha to deliver a faithful reproduction of the LS16M’s natural, dynamic sound. It was also designed to minimize the impact on the guitars looks and tone. The passive design doesn’t use a bulky preamp that’s routed into the body to hamper the instrument’s look or resonance. Each string has its own piezoelectric element for a full-sounding and accurate sound. Because this is a passive pickup system, you’ll need to use an external preamp when you want to plug in the Yamaha LS16M.
